TOPIC: GLOWING FOR CHRIST

Read Matthew 5:14-16 [14]Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.[15]Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.[16]Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

MEMORISE: You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden (Matthew 5:14)

EXPOSITION
As Christians, our life should be an example to the world. As a city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden, but its light at night can be seen from miles. We should glow like lights, showing others what Christ is like. Just as the disciples of Christ were first called Christians at Antioch because the community saw that they identified themselves with the teaching and behaviour of Christ, God expects us to live such a life before others that it would lead them to glorify Him. The followers of Christ were called Christians, because they functioned as a group who separated themselves from the commonly accepted religious groups of the community, and followed Christ.
A story was told of a young minister that was being escorted through a coal mine. At the entrance of one of the dim passageways, he spied a beautiful white flower growing out of the black earth. ‘How can it blossom in such purity and radiance in this dirty mine?’ the preacher asked. ‘Throw some coal dust on it and see for yourself,’ his guide replied. When he did, he was surprised that the fine, sooty particles slid right off the snowy petals, leaving the plant just a lovely and unstained as before. Its surface was so smooth that the grit and grime could not adhere to it.
This depicts the life of a Christian. He is empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as pure a life in this sinful, corrupt, immoral, vile, evil and wicked world, just as the flower could “blossom in such purity and radiance in that dirty mine.”

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord Jesus, give me the grace to live a life that glows like lights showing others what Christ is like.
2. Holy Spirit, empower me to live as pure a life in this sinful world, just as that flower at the entrance of the coal mine could blossom in such a purity and radiance in that dirty mine.
3. Pray for people, most especially ladies, who are languishing under the trauma of rape and fear of reporting such in any way.
